An arrest was made Tuesday in the case of a 69-year-old woman who was hit with a truck while riding her bicycle in the Locust area.
Tanner Furr Kinsey, 18, was charged with felony hit and run after Highway Patrol says he collided with Gayle Nadel while she was riding her bike on Meadow Creek Church Road.
According to Highway Patrol Trooper Mike McCormick, Nadel was driving along the right shoulder of the road when Kinsey, driving a borrowed 2000 Chevy S-10 pickup, made contact with her. Nadel was taken to Atrium Northeast initially, then transported to Atrium Main in Charlotte.
McCormick said the identification of Kinsey came in part from a neighbor who captured the suspect’s picture from his doorbell camera and posted it on social media.
Kinsey received a $7,500 bond.
